Catalog your books, movies, music, software, toys, tools, electronics, & video games.

Get your Mac, a webcam, and Delicious Library and rediscover your home library. Just point any FireWire digital video camera, like an Apple iSightâ„¢, at the barcode on the back of any book, movie, music, or video game. Delicious Library does the rest. The barcode is scanned and within seconds the item's cover appears on your digital shelves filled with tons of in-depth information downloaded from one of six different web sources from around the world. Once your whole library is cataloged, you can find and use your items like never before.

Delicious Library is a very neat app. It is a bit unnecessary but it is really cool. You can use the iSight camera (or a bluetooth barcode scanner) to scan items into your library which it finds off Amazon. It then puts the item on your self, taking the image from Amazon, removing the background, and sizing it correctly. You can also search for items. Delicious Library also puts your iTunes items on their own shelf.

It is a great way to keep track of things you have. If you are wondering what movie to watch or what game to play, Delicious Library is a real help. Once in your library, you can see reviews of items and similar items. You can export the library to the web and a bunch more.

The application's scanning with the iSight works great. I've had very few problems with it. It would be cool if they made an iPhone app that used the same scanning technology on the go.

Delicious Library is a highly polished app. It not only works great, but is very cool.

Delicious Library is awesome! It's so unnecessary, but extremely enjoyable to use!

My biggest complaint however, and this is completely out of the developer's hands, is that there is very inconsistent product lookups for Australian DVDs, games, etc. When will Amazon open up an Australian wing? If every other major website can do it, why can't they?

Also, I was lucky enough to get the iPhone app before Apple pulled it off the store :-)

This runs like crap on my Core2 Mabook. I have about 250 books in my library and it slows and stutters when scrolling through them all. It now repeatedly crashes when I add more books.

I have since switched to Bookpedia, and though the barcode scanning works better in Delicious Library, everything else works better in Bookpedia.

mrtnmatt! I would love your serial if you are not going to use it. This thing is my dream app. email [email protected]

Very cool app and very nice interface. I dont really have much use for it though, Anyone want a serial number?

This is a rather nice program.
I use it now for a long while nd i'm quite satisfied.

The...pedias are on the same level but even more expensive. I must say even 40$ is too much for this.

Limited feature set and terrible performance. All eye-candy and no substance.

Get DVD/Game/CD/Bookpedia instead. While it's slightly annoying that those applications aren't bundled the *pedia software is simply much better in every way imaginable.

This is an amazing app - lets me and my family see who has bought what books, which helps us to not have duplicates everywhere. The ability to publish our libraries is really really useful, since we live in different cities.

I love the ability to just scan the barcode and nearly always get all of the correct information loaded into the computer (i'm Australian, and as yet it doesn't have an australian database, though most of our books are the same as the UK or US).

The ability for Australian DVD's would be an amazing adition though. At the moment it doesnt recognise any of my DVD's, thus forcing me to search for british or american versions and edit the data.

The only thing that could possibly make this application better would be the inclusion of comic book cataloguing. Other than that, I totally dig the update. Great improvement from v1.

@l2g , yes it's half price ($20) if you bought your 1.x license before december 2007. go to their site for details.
